d&b audiotechnik’s  J-Series is intended for use in large-scale sound reinforcement applications, providing incredibly quick and easily configurable array solutions even in the most arduous situations. Control of dispersion behavior is a particular fixation at d&b, as is keeping the size and weight of systems to an absolute minimum; these are both areas in which the J-Series excels. It also embodies the d&b holistic approach to sound reinforcement solutions: integrating loudspeakers, electronics, mechanical deployment assemblies, remote control functions, transport solutions and setup design tools for precise calculation of array performance.

d&b’s J8 loudspeaker is designed specifically for use in large-scale sound reinforcement applications. It is a 3-way design housing 2 x 12" LF drivers, one horn-loaded 10" MF driver and two 1.4" exit HF compression drivers with 3" voice-coils mounted to a dedicated wave-shaping device. The cylindrical wave segments produced couple coherently in the vertical plane. The symmetrical dipolar arrangement of the neodymium LF drivers around the centrally mounted coaxial MF and HF components allows a smooth overlap of the adjacent frequency bands in the crossover design. This results in an exceptional 80° horizontal constant directivity dispersion control nominally being maintained down to 250 Hz. The mechanical and acoustical design enables flown vertical columns of up to twenty-four loudspeakers to be suspended using vertical splay angles between them of 0° to 7° with a 1° resolution. The J8 is acoustically and mechanically compatible with the J12 loudspeaker. It can be used in columns of purely J8 loudspeakers or combined with J12s and/or with J-SUBs.
